Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $425 helped to buy more rice to cook and sell.


Aba's story

Aba is married and has six children. She has received some schooling through the completion of middle school. Currently, Aba sells cooked rice in Domenase, which is near Cape Coast. She has been involved in this business for about seven years now. Her husband is a mason and Aba’s income helps him meet the family's general expenses. Aba will use the loan to buy more rice to cook and sell. With the new profits from her expanded enterprise, Aba plans to develop her business further by venturing into new markets.
